Luther "Guitar Jr." Johnson



Not to be confused with the other two Luther Johnsons ("Georgia Snake Boy" Johnson or "Houserocker" Johnson) "Guitar Jr" Johnson is a searing Electric Bluesman with a confident, energized style. Though he was born in Mississippi, Johnson's playing represents the essence of Chicago's West Side. His warm solos are filled with stark bends, distorted single-note leads and fuzzy power chords that drive rocking twelve-bar blues. His sound recalls primary influence Magic Sam, with whom he cut his teeth playing in the 1960s before moving on to work with Muddy Waters and the Nighthawks in the '70s. The past few decades have seen some great solo albums featuring his raw guitar and Gospel-influenced vocal style.
